I’m often asked how the work that we do in the office is translated into what you experience in your life. Here’s how.
Firstly, when someone first comes into the office, we do a complete consultation and examination to see if our care is right for you.
We assess your body for what may be going on physically and explore emotional and mental stresses in your life that may also be contributing to your unique situation. After, we create recommendations specifically for you.
Almost every patient starts off with the first level of healing. This level is about self discovery and they learn what isn’t working well in their body or in their life.
In this level of healing we build the awareness of the body through your breath. You get a chance to notice how you hold tension in your body and how you’ve hidden physical, emotional and mental stress. When you don’t feel your emotions in the moment and hide it deep within your body, over time, your body will run out of places to hide your tension and this can lead to illness and/or disease.
Where you have locked your feelings in your body, is where you have limited the range of motion your spine can experience.
In this first level of healing, we use gentle light touch treatments and breathing exercises to work to unlock the areas in your spine that are limited.
